Peppermint Patty Brownies



I have been busy preparing holiday baking recipes and my mother reminded me about an old favorite.  When I was younger my Mom used to make a decadent brownie with York Peppermint Patties in the middle.  I thought I would try this with a few gluten-free mixes and they all worked well.

To prepare the brownies, use your favorite brownie mix or try my very easy Cocoa Brownie Recipe.   I baked all of the brownies in an 8×8 pan, instead of a 9×13 pan and added 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon peppermint extract to the batter.  I then poured half of the batter into a greased pan.   I layered 16 mini-patties in a single layer (4×4) on the batter.  Using a rubber spatula I spread the rest of the batter over the patties.   Bake according to brownie recipe.  If the recipe originally called for a 9×13 pan you will probably need to add 5-15 more minutes of baking, since the batter is deeper than the original recipe.  Check to see that the batter is fully cooked by inserting a toothpick and seeing if it comes out clean.   Make sure you aren’t just seeing melted candy on the toothpick, so try and insert it between patties.
